56:1 To the chief Musician upon Jonathelem-rechokim, Michtam of
David, when the Philistines took him in Gath. Be merciful to
me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily
56:2 My enemies would daily swallow [me] up: for [they are] many
that fight against me, O thou Most High.
56:3 In the time when I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
56:4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust;
I will not fear what flesh can do to me.
56:5 Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts [are]
against me for evil.
56:6 They assemble themselves, they hide themselves, they mark
my steps, when they wait for my soul.
56:7 Shall they escape by iniquity; in [thy] anger cast down the
people, O God.
56:8 Thou numberest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy
bottle: [are they] not in thy book?
56:9 When I cry [to thee], then shall my enemies turn back: this
I know; for God [is] for me.
56:10 In God will I praise [his] word: in the LORD will I praise
56:11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man
can do to me.
56:12 Thy vows [are] upon me, O God: I will render praises to
56:13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: [wilt thou]
not [deliver] my feet from falling, that I may walk before God
in the light of the living?
